BEDFORD GAZEJJE. : n •'' *>l'* 2? O, I'a.— FBiDAI ::" : J4,JS6I- B. F- Blayers, Editor Jind '-'ropri&tor Will tii3 ♦'Republicans" endorse . Wade ? Benjamin . V ade, the Republican Senator from Ohio, delivered a speech in the Senate of the United States, on the 17th ot December . im. in which he tjok occasion to speak oi the Fu gitive Slave Law as fallows • "I know the chafes have been mane arm "rung in our ears, that we have tven unfaithful "to vour Fugitive Slave s'-ii. I he ia\v ex ceedin!y odious to any fiee people, end de "prives* us of nil the 0 !1 ruamnties of liberty j "that the *3ngl v <" >■'>■ r/rce Ante considered "more sacred than anything else.'" Now there are but lew members of the so- , called Republican patty tn UedlVd connty, that will not say that the Fugitive Slave Law : i a righteous enactment and ought to be can i-d , out in all its provisions. That is to say, there are but few of them that will at present agree with Mr. Wade in his denunciation of that law. II jW long they will be true to what is doubtless, an honest conviction, we would not venture to guess. Their leaders generally mould them like so many noses of wax, and we have no doubt that when they find that Mr. Lincoln, Mr. Waile, Mr. Seward and the other bell-weth ers of their flock, are leading oft in opposition to the Fugitive Slave Law and against an honora ble conciliation of the Sooth, they will not hesitate to swallow all their former declarations of conservatism, and foilow in the footstep? > i their leaflets. Republican conciliation will at last end in coercion and violence. It :: the se cret desire of such men as Wade, Gidding?, Hale, Sumner, Grow. Greeley, \\ ilmot, An drews and their confederates, to plunge the Government into a war with the fifteen Slave States of this Union. If such is not the case, why do they refuse to lend their assistance in settling the troubles that are upon the country ? Why do they refuse to go into compromises which many of their party are willing to en dorse ? Why do they denounce the Fugitive Slave Law and oppose the restoration of the Missouri Compromise line and its extension to the Pacific ? They are for war, war between father and son, between brother and brother, and for no otsier reason than that they hope that in the anarchy and confusion which would ensue, the darling projects of their lives, the abolition of slavery and the civil and social e qualization of the white and black races, wouid he accomplished. Now let us see vvnelher the Republicans of Bedford county, will h* true to their oft repealed declarations that they are in favor of giving the South her rights. Let'us see whether they will have the courage to re pudiate such men as Wade and his co-workers when they denounce the Fugitive Slave Law. Let us near them speak out if they are honest in their boasted conservatism. W hat say you to Mr. Wade, Messrs. Republicans? Is it true ? The Bedford Abolition organ of last week speaks as follows of'.he late fanatical and in cendiary speech of lien. F . \v ade in the Senate of the United States : "Senator Wade, of Ohio, delivered in the Senate, a few days ago, a powerful and patriot ic speech, vindicating the position of the Re publican party, and completely refuting thfc charges brought against it by its enemies. He took a strong stand tor the Union, and against the right of a State to secede, denouncing such an act as treason." If Senator Wade vindicated the position of the "Republican" party,then the position of that party must be one of hostility to tne Tugi live Slave Law, because Mr. Wade says that that "law : . x.-.eedisgly odious to anv iree peo ple, and deprives ' fall the guaranties of lib erty that the Anglo Saxon tace have considered more sacred than any thing else." Is it true that this is the position of the "Republican' party, arid do [the Bedford "Republicans" en dorse it ? Let us know, if you please. The Charleston Forts. After our last week's edition had been put to press, we received the news that Moj. An derson, the officer in command at the Charles ton Forts, afier spiking the guns and setting fire to the gun-carnages, had evacuated Fort Moultrie and drawn off the men under bis com mend to Fort Sumpter. The President imme diately convened the Cabinet, when it was re solved that Maj. Anderson should be allowed to remain at Fort Sampler. Mr. Floyd, Secre tary of War, not agreeing in 'his decision, ten dered his resignation to the President, who ac cepted it at once, and appointed Post Mister General HoH to the vacancy. Judge Holl will administer the affairs o( the Department, under the advice of Gen. Scott, if if rumored that the appointment was tendered to Gen Scott, but that he declined it. Tt.'e appoint ment of Judge Holt is highly praised, wringing an approbatory paragraph from even the N. A Tribune. All this looks as though Premden Buchanan was determined to execute the laws. Fuel to the Fire. The organ of the Abolition di>unionists, in this place, publishes unauthenticated reports from the Southern States, detailing accounts ol mal-treatment of Northern men who were sup poied to be engaged in filing cotton-gins and in doing other mischief to the property of the Sou thern people. It also publishes a statement to the effect that Montgomery and his band had not been committing any depredations in Kan sas. This last is known to be a palpable false hood, because Gen. Harney, in hi official re port, sets forth the aggressions of Montgomery upon the people of the Kansas border. But „ r fakp. the Abolition organ publishes an\ thing (hat A ill tend to exci'e the prejudices and feelings of onr people against their South ern brethren. H>s determined to add fuel to the flames.

THE REACTION IN NEW ENGLAND. —The In - nual elect iorwif town oificers in New lityen was held last Friday, and resulted in the tic cess of the D -mooratic ticket by five hur.jrt'd majority, out of about 5,000 votes. The l|w n embraces Fair Haven and West vi lie, whic|a'- ways give Republican mnjoi ities. The vtoo.y is therefore more significant than it the (fic tion had been confined to the city prop-) — But even the city election was carried bytiie Republicans a few months ago,—a majority ol the officers then elected being Republican.— New England is coming to her sensps. "two months' experience of the practical results >f a sectional abolition victory, is opening the em of her people to their folly. Tiie New H.tven Register, in anticipation of the election, tiid, and the people responded to what it said : "We owe it to ouiselves, to show to the country that the heart of the chief city of Con necticut still beats "to the music of tiie Union 1" that it responds to the etibrts ol the noble nen who are striving for the preservation of its trlessings ! that we know no sectional interes's in a common country—and that we concede to all, and demand for all, that equality which is guaranteed to the whole under the Constitution. New Haven owes its prosperity to a fraternal intercourse with otutr port.ons of tiie country. Hardly a Southern city that i 3 not in ctose commercial intercourse with us—or war until a few weeks ago—when a distrust of our friend ship seemed warranted by the election oi Lin coln—and it is the duty alike of patriotism and interest, to "lift up our voice like a trumpet," and correct the impression. New Haven in not responsible for that "dire event"—and we owe it to ourselves and the country to give Repub licanism a decidy), and overwhelming rebuke." iletlford C'oiiiify Teachers' As sociation.
